CELULLITE BLITZING FIT TIP
Step up to the cellulite free zone
Cellulite is a problem area for a lot of us. Science suggests that it is genetic and although there is no simple cure, try the fit tip below and see if it makes a difference.
Stand in front of a step or box with your feet a hip-width apart. Slowly bend your knees and hips and jump onto the box or step whilst swinging your arms to generate momentum (try and jump as high as you can). Step down and do this again. Repeat movement twice a day, doing 8 sets of 10, to see an improvement.
90% of women suffer from cellulite (whatever their weight or size) - so if it is a problem area for you - you are not alone!
